When a child is adopted into a loving a family, it is standard procedure for a new birth certificate to be issued. The new birth certificate will have the adoptee’s new name, along with the names of the adoptive parents. All references to the adoptee’s birth name, the name of the adoptee’s birth parents, and the reasons of the adoption, are omitted. Now, the original birth certificate is placed in a court file confidential which is sealed and unavailable. However, many believe the records should be sealed forever, while others believe the records should be opened so that helps adoptees can discover their biological background and heritage.
Regardless, adoptees should have the right to know their biological parents because of medical history. According to Psychology Today, a little boy tells the story of finding his biological mom. “Initially, bio mom was reluctant to speak with me. The private investigator said she was afraid that I was looking for money. But after convincing her that I was more interested in my medical chart than her portfolio, bio mom allowed me to charm her” (Psychology Today 1).
Many people who have or have had family members with haemophilia will ask that their baby boys get tested soon after birth. About one-third of babies who are diagnosed with haemophilia have a new mutation not present in other family members. In these cases, a doctor might check for haemophilia if a newborn is showing certain signs of haemophilia. To make a diagnosis, doctors would perform certain blood tests to show if the blood is clotting properly. If it does not, then they would do clotting factor tests, also called factor assays, to diagnose the cause of the bleeding disorder.
Everybody knows that family is a big concern. It isn’t just family that people are concerned about, it’s about how you treat your family and how your family treats you. There are 428,000 children living in foster care everyday. Instead of being reunified with their families, these children are yearning for somebody who will love and take care of them.

Hi, Marcy! These are all signs that something is going wrong in a child’s life. Children of this young age should have several friends, especially at school. Marcy, I believe this is an ongoing thing in the world today and that all baby sitters should have an extensive back ground check before being hired in or out of home environments. Marcy every adult who knows of or has witnessed these type situations should be responsible enough to report it immediately.
The girls had always lived under the wing of their silk-stocking parents and they had quite opposing thoughts on it. “Why go back home when you can relish in the freedom of adulthood and possibly irresponsibility?” “Is that a hint of rebellion I hear? How could the angelic April Donovan ever think of committing anything near wrong? Seriously though, I’m glad to be going home. There wasn’t anything here for us here anyway
Parents at very least deserve to be informed of medical procedures performed on their child and the possible results from said procedures. There is no other medical procedure where informed consent is not required prior to taking place. People may refuse, but at the very least they are given the information with that right. The mandatory function of NBS combined with the requirement to have information without any requirement to distribute that information has caused a lack in people knowing anything about the tests that are being performed. In 2009, the Consumer Task Force on Newborn Screening of the Genetic Alliance, a consumer advocacy organization, conducted a survey of 2,266 women age 18-45 regarding their attitudes on various issues relevant to newborn screening.

Because of these strict beliefs, cultural norms birth rates were down considerably compared to today, for many women wanted to await child birth; until they were financial secure or stable. Additionally, “we never read (or heard) about family violence and almost nothing about singlehood, cohabitation, stepfamilies, or one parent families” (Jones, ASID, IIDA, IDEC and Phyllis Sloan Allen, 2009, p. 74). However, in the 1970’s people began to expand their horizon’s, and soon ventured out to explore other cultures; causing challenges towards the social movement on their views of a traditional family structure. This is why, “since the 1970’s three of the major shifts have occurred in family structure, gender roles, and economic concerns” (Jones, ASID, IIDA, IDEC and Phyllis Sloan Allen, 2009, p. 74). One of those changes were women decided to go to school to fulfill a higher degree, while awaiting giving birth to a child; or saying “I do” to their future loves.
